Epoxy Floor Coating Protects Surfaces From The Elements
Commercial and industrial flooring has long been plagued with issues such as general wear and tear, cracking and staining. The conventional practice of leaving a bare matte concrete surface in a commercial or industrial workplace leaves the concrete exposed and susceptible to harm and flawing. Such side effects can be seen in both outdoor and indoor unprotected flooring surfaces. Just a simple lick of epoxy coating can be the touch any surface needs, be it garage epoxy or a large-scale warehouse, to convert it into a durable long-lasting investment.
Epoxy coating of surfaces provides the advantage of a silky-smooth glossy surface that not only provides the underlying layers protection but also allows ease of cleaning and maintenance using a simple buffer. It is no surprise that most large-scale commercial operations and factories prefer epoxy coating a floor rather than leaving it bare due to the sheer reduction in upkeep and maintenance costs, not to mention the improved resale value of the property. In essence, epoxy coating can be viewed as a solid investment for any work environment with little to no costs involved.
Another huge advantage of epoxy coating work surfaces is the fact that it can provide protection for costly equipment, equipment that can be prone to withering after repeated usage over rough surfaces. From forklifts to power tools, an epoxy coated floor will prevent scuffs, scratches and reduce fall damage to delicate and costly equipment.
The application requirements for color epoxy to match any surface are relatively simple. A thoroughly cleaned and matte surface to aid the adhesion process, a fully cured dry concrete plane and minimal cracks are all that is required for the preparation of the floor’s coating. After a simple cleanup and check all should be prepped and ready as long as the concrete is not polished. Note that temperature conditions outside the manufacturer’s recommended range is not preferable as it may cause the coating to bubble and peel. Therefore, make sure the temperature conditions are corrected prior to application.
After the application of the epoxy resin coating, one can enjoy the advantages of a glossy and easy to maintain surface, such as resistance to oil and chemical stains, anti-slip features and protection against harsh elements. Epoxy coating hard work surfaces has become the new norm ranging from industrial applications to a regular home garage. With extraordinary results, anyone considering improving a workspace should deeply research and invest time in epoxy coating for any range of environments.
In conclusion epoxy coating floors will provide a solid, durable investment for any property surface let it be industrial or regular work surface use. With excellent waterproof and stain proof properties along with ease of clean and maintenance epoxy resin floor coating is the first choice for anyone willing to protect their surfaces.

Really Pleased! Our garage needed some major help – not only was it a mess but the floor was just ugly with all the stains and such. I will agree with the reviewer below – do not go with the cheap imitators! Floorguard not only has a great product, but their installers and service is well worth any extra cost, which is minimal anyway. Our neighbors have commented on how good our garage looks and we’ve recommended them to Floorguard without hesitation.
The garage looks so good! A+ company on every level. Wish I had another garage to resurface!
My neighbor had a floor done by another company that was new to the industry, boy were they sorry. I went with the experts, Floorguard did an incredible job!!

Covering our old, gray garage floor was a great aesthetic and functional improvement. This project requires 2 days: first day preparing the surface (major job requiring right equipment), putting down first coating and sprinkling the flakes. This requires about 4 hours. After this dries, they come back next day and apply the topcoat. They notified us when they would start the work and arrived as promised. They worked diligently, completed the work efficiently, left the work areas and our driveway clean. The owner Steve is a great guy to deal with.

It was a pleasure dealing with the company’s owner Steve Chaloult. When we called him to give us an estimate, he arranged to come within a few days. We have a very large two car garage. His estimate was a bit more than the first company we called but he seemed very well prepared in showing us samples and very knowledgeable about his product and we just liked him. For personal reasons , we had to delay installation for about a month and he could not be more accommodating. we finally we able to have it done this past week and it was worth the wait. The garage floor is just beautiful and I never would have thought I would say that about a garage floor! We also had the lower walls around the floor done and very glad we did. At one time we were thinking we could do this ourselves using a kit. WHAT were we thinking? This is a job for a professional and we are so glad we used Steve.

The owner Steve Chaloult was easy to work with and he’s very good at what he does. I highly recommend Floorguard as your contractor if you’re wanting to have a garage floor finished with a durable epoxy like colored finish. Floorguard came when they said they would and cleaned up after they were finished. Floorguard also installs garage storage cabinets.
